Maybe that's an unusual thing for you and why you now regret the loss of the connection. The other thing is the magnetic pull of INTJ/ENFP which incidentally doesn't end up in a happy place a lot of the time. It's just the interplay of your functions. My mother is an ENFP and we hate each other, like passionately hate.



    Oh. So you played all kinds of love you\hate you games and now are wanting a simple, truthful direct answer from him? Is it just me who sees the hypocrisy in that? Maybe the point isn't that you should find someone else but accept the fact this particular connection maybe dead and you'll need to move on regardless. The next time a potential connection comes along you could be authentic and just have a proper relationship with that person instead of needing to enact some kind of shakespearean comedy.
    We had a connection. And I already said why I pushed him away. And no I have never been rejected, so I suppose this situation is unusual for me. But it has nothing to do with why I have feelings for him.

    I didn't play games intentionally. And yes I would like a yes or no response. Heck I have an ex who put me through a wringer and when he asked me if I wanted to get back with him, I said no. I said I did not feel that way about him. I suppose I could have felt amusement at the tables being turned or been really cold or left him hanging but I answered honestly, and also tried to be delicate when I rejected him. In fact whenever I've rejected anyone I've been direct and delicate when I could be.

    So I suppose I was seeing things from my perspective, and not seeing the point of being overly vengeful toward someone. If he isn't interested then say so if he is then say so...

    And im sorry you hate your mom. Maybe the intj doesn't feel the same pull. Oan though he did tell me on many ocassions that he does not want to date a girl like him. He likes girls that are different from him and he did tell me that he liked me(though that was back in August) so I'm assuming that he doesn't hate me or that I didn't fake a chemistry.

    He may never respond. If he doesn't by the end of the month I will move on and chalk it up as a lesson learned.

    No, I didn't say that. I believe that when one door shuts another opens. There will be someone else if not the intj. I just want it to be him, but if it's not, I will shut the door and open it to someone else once I've had time to get over him. But being that I have deep feelings for him, it's not as easy to just walk away without knowing whether or not it's done...

    True. If he never responds I think it would be for that reason, or because he didn't know how to tell me he wasn't interested, or he may not care enough to respond. All are realities.

    I think that between getting over him and welcoming in someone else, some time off from relationships with others to introspect about your relationship with intimacy itself is necessary. Becoming more confident and direct in relationships isn't just a matter of realizing one's current ways aren't right and not engaging in them again, but a long and deep self-discovery and healing process - and if he says yes here, he will be in on that struggle with you. If he's taking a while to consider his answer, I'd guess that he's deciding carefully if he wants to be a part of it - to continue to be a part of it after all that's already transpired. Saying yes will be the beginning, not closure.

    I believe that if one has attachment issues - like the hot and cold, etc - and they know they have those issues, it is wrong to start a romantic relationship until some good progress has been made on those issues. I imagine wanting to give the best of you to the one you care about, even if it takes time to access and grow into that best.

    End of the month?? Daayyum. Have fun with that!



    My brother is an INTJ and also a dick. But kind of an aloof cold, passive-aggressive dick. Not the proper kind of asshole like me, and all the ENTPs (and other types) I know IRL that will say it straight to your face.

    I don't have attachment issues. I've dated other people and did not have that issue. Like I said, at the time I met him, I had just lost my mom, and I had gotten out of an abusive relationship. The INTJ was too intense for me, and I felt like I needed space, and that it wouldn't be right to get too invested when I was grieving. I pushed him away, not because I am normally hot and cold, but because at that time period, I felt too vulnerable and not ready.

    That being said, I'm okay with him telling me "no". I've already said that. I will understand it. I know that I didn't treat him right and that I've been dishonest and off and on with him. I'm willing to accept the consequences of that, and I don't see myself treating another person that way--not simply because of how this situation ended, but because under normal circumstances I don't treat people that way to begin with.

    OAN, I obviously wasn't going to just jump from one relationship to another--though I admit that every year that has always been one or two special guys LMAO, but I will definitely take some time apart after this. I've already sort of assessed this situation, in its entirety, so it's not for self-discovery purposes, but more like a part of moving on, is being able to completely shut the door, or your feelings from someone else, so that you can give your heart to the next person, without being jaded or still having feelz for someone else. I would wait until I didn't have the same intense feelz for him, and sort of do my own thing for a while, prior to trying to date someone else.

    Truthfully I loathe liking people. I do so much better when I don't. I'm typically more logical, and more certain of things. When I like someone it's a complete mindf**** and I can't wait until I move on from this situation and can stop acting so stupid. Like I said, I'm pretty embarrassed about sending him that letter to begin with. I reread it a little while ago, and thankfully it wasn't as mushy or as pathetic as I thought, but was slightly vomit-inducing, lol. Yah well.

    I honestly don't even expect him to say yes at this point, but I'm now wanting to see if he's going to man up and tell me no, or if he's going to just avoid it. Me thinks the latter.

    End of the month, is like 2.5 weeks away. It's not that long. And the next couple of weeks are going to be super busy. LMAO, but thanks Johnny adding to my feelings of patheticness. Yeah this INTJ isn't necessarily passive aggressive, but he's careful about words. I will say that. There were only a few times where he really went off on me and told me how it was, and it was always when I tried to make an assumption or judgement about his character, he doesn't like being attacked, that's for sure. Other than that, he rarely will say verbally when he is bothered, or what he really thinks about something(to me that is) but he'll "do" things to let me know he's bothered--the silent treatment, is his favorite thing to do, when he's upset with me, matter of fact. So maybe he is passive aggressive lmao. But he won't speak up unless he's cornered and feels like he has to. Oh well. I've actually told him plenty of times, I would appreciate it, if he would just be as direct and honest as possible even if it was mean.

    Oan, you remind me of an ex of mine, who had no problems verbalizing how he felt to anyones face. It turned me off, but nowadays I would appreciate that. I hate passive aggressiveness. Because eventually that passive aggressiveness turns into a bomb, and they will go off, it's almost scary when they do. People who are always real about things, might come off as a-holes, but at least they aren't scary, since it's not rare.

I was sexually attracted to my ex, one other guy I dated, another guy I crushed on while with my ex, and finally the intj.

    I broke up with my ex, out of an 8 year ltr, 2.5 years ago, so honestly I have only dated about 4 or 5 guys, but the intj, and my ex were the only ones I had sex with.

    I have no plans on dating anyone else for the remainder of 2014, if things don't work out with the intj.

    @rayna Can I just say (as I've been reading along) how impressed I am at your (seemingly) calm responses to a good amount of criticism on this thread, and also having to repeat yourself constantly! The latter would drive me nuts, I've even gotten a little exasperated when a post here has caused you to rehash details reflected earlier in the thread.

    A word of caution: whatever you do or don't do, never take to heart completely the advice of everyone (not that you technically could). This is about you and him, and you know the history of that much better than you've even described to us here.
